Amish Handmade Quilt Facts

For hundreds of years, a number of tactics have been produced to make it simpler for quilt-makers to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these methods is called paper piecing, which is nearly always taken advantage of to compose the elaborate angles of the Mariner's Compass quilts. Paper piecing, as it name designates, uses a distinct paper pattern on which the fabric segments are sewn. The pattern leads the seamstress to perfectly sew the pieces together so that the finalized top will lie out flat. Techniques of this sort as this are an effective help to our quilt-makers!
